Prince George, B.C. –  Just minutes after celebrating CN’s Carbon Reduction Project for Business  ( see previous story) ,  the  celebration branched out to  another  at City Hall.

There,  acting Mayor Garth Frizzell  was joined by representatives from CN  and Tree Canada  to  mark  the planting of special  trees  on the grounds of City Hall,  and  to announce the planting of many more around the City.

“We are going to be planting 150  new trees” says acting Mayor Garth Frizzell,  a project made possible  through partnerships with  Tree Canada,  CN  and BC Hydro.   In all,  the project is  estimated  to cost $27 thousand dollars.

The trees planted on the grounds of City Hall  are three maples  representing Canada,  one birch to  mark the  relationship with First Nations,  and a dogwood  which is the provincial symbol for B.C.

CN is  sponsoring the planting of trees  along  18th avenue and Ospika Boulevard  around the CN Centre’s parking lot,  and BC Hydro is  planting another  90 trees  on the Ospika median between Massey and Ferry.




“CN’s Carbon Reduction Project”, that’s funny. Instead of planting trees why can’t they plant a fence along their route and quit killing moose. Had to finish off a lot of those poor guys years ago and it still happens.

Would be great to see a great tree project along Central… the funny looking patchwork of trees along there is kind of bush league looking.
